This is a complete file for using the Great American Mail Race in the classroom. It includes letters to send to other teachers; a guide for students to follow to find and record school addresses and address envelopes; a basic friendly letter template; and a questionnaire for students to send to other schools to be returned. These files are in one zipped file and will open in Word. I have the same project in PDF files as well. I have loved using this activity with my 5th and 6th grade classes, but it could be adaptable for any grade level. It is a great writing and social studies activity.
